Shops, Services, and Restaurants
Our partners opened a range of new shops, restaurants and services. World Duty Free had a great year with record Duty Free sales, up 10.5 per cent over 2015. They opened three new stores—Bottega Veneta (the first to launch at a North American airport), Gucci and Les Boutiques. We welcomed Discover BC, Go Travel and Vancouver Marketplace pre-security in our Domestic and International terminal buildings. And we welcomed a number of offerings throughout the terminal post-security including: Travel Lab, Brooks Brothers, Lole, Sea to Sky Marketplace and a new Plaza Premium Lounge (Domestic); Bench, Desigual, Eddie Bauer, Discover BC and CNN Newsstand (Transborder); Lift Bar & Grill and Church’s Chicken (International).
Lift Bar & Grill
On December 28, YVR celebrated the launch of Lift Bar & Grill, a popular full-serve restaurant originating in Vancouver’s Coal Harbour and well-known for its seasonal cuisine and ocean-wise offerings. The restaurant is wrapped around the airport’s iconic aquarium in the international departures area, providing customers with a unique atmosphere that reflects YVR’s award-winning sense of place.
